Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearly the most well-knownamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the producer— since if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, strongand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This is true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith far morepriceyitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand namepresentedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Yachtmaster Blue.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the renowneddesign of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is real to a lower extentfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
